Elliott Hewitt brace inspires Notts County to comeback win against Crewe

Two goals from Notts County midfielder Elliott Hewitt kept the Magpies' promotion push on track as they saw off Crewe 4-1 at Meadow Lane.
In front of a bumper crowd of more than 17,000, Notts hoped their partisan support would lead to a blistering start but it was the visitors who took an early lead.
A three-on-one counter-attack led to Shaun Miller tapping in at the back post in the eighth minute after Adam Collin had saved a shot from Callum Ainley.
County were level seven minutes later when Noor Husin lashed in a stunning drive from 30 yards.
Notts pressed hard for a second before half-time and it duly arrived when Jon Stead's low cross into the area was met by Hewitt, whose mishit shot was enough to beat Ben Garratt in the 41st minute.
And Kevin Nolan's side moved further ahead 15 minutes into the second half when Hewitt fired in his second following a brilliant move through midfield.
And Derby loanee Mason Bennett completed the scoring on his debut when he tapped in Lewis Alessandra's cross in the 90th minute.
